I sit and stare at the skates

As they await my weight.

One sock, two socks on my feet,

Must get them on before I hit the streets.

Fastening them on tight,

I stand tall like a knight.

I start to glide left then right,

ready to take flight.

I bend my knees,

I stay low feeling the breeze.

Seeing the trees pass by Iā€™m at ease.
